dbgrid32.ocx not registered

Hello experts,
I'm building a simple vb app that includes a DB grid. It was developed using VB 6 on a machine running Windows 2000 Professional. It has been complied and run as expected on this machine, However, when I moved this to a Windows XP HE machine, I get the following error on startup:

Component 'DBGRID32.OCX' or one of its dependencies not correctly registered: a file is missing or invalid.

Is there a way to distribute an app so it bundles the needed components? Or could this be an XP problem?

Use the "Package & Deployment Wizard". See into the Add-Ins menu or from the VB menu.
